ROCHESTER - Rochester Police announced on Monday they believe the remains of a city transient missing for almost three months have been found.
Police responded to a wooded area off Chamberlain Street around 4:20 p.m. on Sunday after a person walking in the woods noticed the skeletal remains, which were quickly identified as human.
Police also found clothing and other evidence at the scene which led them to believe they belong to Kimberly Blanchard, the 38-year-old woman reported to be missing since June 6.
The remains have not been officially identified by the State Medical Examiner's Office and there is no cause of death available at this time. Further examination of the remains will be conducted by the State Medical Examiner's Office.
Rochester Police had been actively investigating the case, and in late July said they couldn't rule out foul play.
If anyone has any information regarding her disappearance, they are asked to please contact the Rochester Police Department at 603-330-7128.
